The Italian Network of Psychologists’ Associations (INPA) warmly invites you to the 14th European Congress of Psychology (ECP) to be held in Milan on 7–10 July 2015 under the auspices of the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations (EFPA).
Both new research and best practices from all fields of Psychology are welcome.
As stated by the EFPA General Assembly in Istanbul on July 10 2011, a new commitment has been taken to extend the contribution of psychological research and applications towards society as a whole and beyond the traditional recipients of psychological services.
Policy makers and communities should benefit from the progress of Psychology in times of profound changes across all domains of life to promote health, education, work, well-being and welfare.
The EFPA General Assembly accepted our proposal to host the 14th ECP in Milan in the context of the EXPO 2015, choosing the University of Milano–Bicocca as the Congress venue.
The entire Italian psychological community has given its full support to ensuring the success of the Congress.
